Meet Over My Dead Body 2’s Ventriloquist Villain And Mysterious Goddess

By Sato . February 6, 2014 . 3:15am

 

So far, we know that your family’s bloodline in Over My Dead Body 2 are affected by a curse that causes them to die in two years, and they also can’t reproduce with other normal humans. Famitsu gives us a look at who’s behind the curse and the goddess that sacrificed herself to save the family.

 

Abeno Seimei: 

  

Abeno is actually the man who slaughtered the family and cursed their bloodline. Even the emperor himself confides in this man, who has the power of immortality. He’s also a ventriloquist, and uses his red “Onigashira” puppet to speak in a humorous tone. Due to Abeno’s cool personality and his rather crazy puppet, some may consider him to have a split-personality.

 

Nueko: 

The goddess Nueko appeared out of nowhere to revive the family through the ceremony of soul recalling, which required her to sacrifice her own life in order to bring them back after being killed from the trap set by Abeno. It is said that she will also be joining you later on in the game.

 

Over My Dead Body 2 will be released this summer for PlayStation Vita.

    “Nue”ko.. That name isn’t so goddess-like. Expecting a twist.

    • Cheesy04

      Thanks for pointing that out :D I’m guessing… She’ll be the real villain.

      • neocatzon

        Also, Seimei Abe usually side with the good in most story adaptation.
        That Onigashira puppet too, suspiciously strike similarity to Barong http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barong_(mythology) which fights evil.

        Of course, my guess can be completely off the course..

        • God

          And that centipede resembles a Mukade, a giant poisonus centipede… On a more important note, abe no Seimei is often treated as a heroic figure, he was a diviner for the govermnent of huge importance, who among his duties besides divining were analizyng strange events, exorcisms and warding againt evils spirit, your educated guess seems to be on the money.

          • neocatzon

            Still, it’s possible their current affiliations will not change at all. Our idea behind their name may means nothing. So, don’t put these guesses as truth. (Evil Seimei in Nurarihyon no Mago for example)

          • God

            Maybe, but i have a feeling about this one…

  • Isaac Newton

    Abeno Seimei hmmmm seems familiar….

    • icecoffemix

      Based on real historical figure, if you see anything from game/anime/manga/ln about him, they come from it too.

    So your weasel friend has a role in combat?

    ..And Nueko’s tatoos are missing when she was still bound and gagged (except in the actual 3D model).

    live for 2 years and marry a goddess or live normally without curses… hmmmmmmm

  • Nickie

    So.. localization? Yes, no? ….Yes? =D

    Still sad over the disappointed over the first not being localized.

    ps. That centipede with a face with the Goddess is creepy.

    • artemisthemp

      Yoshida hint that Localization would happen

  • http://resettears.wordpress.com/ Reset Tears

    Looking good… I quite like this interesting take on Seimei. Sounds like an amusing(?) villain.
    Hoping for the localization! :>

    • God

      Plot twist: He is not the villain, see two comments above for more information.

  • Ladius

    The game looks absolutely gorgeous, hopefully Sony will localize it considering what Yoshida said regarding that topic.
